#BeKindWhenYouAreOnline Parent Information Night Tonight
How can I monitor my child online? When should my child get a phone? What is “vamping” anyway? Join us tonight, Tuesday, March 3rd from 6:30 to 7:30 at Millard West High School for an information night for parents. Millard Public Schools and the Superintendent’s Interfaith Advisory have been asking these questions, and more importantly, trying to help families find answers. Through the #BeKind When You’re Online initiative, parents and community members are invited to a free session with START, Stand Together And Rethink Technology. This session is for parents. It is free and open to the entire community.
